Under 4,000 to go

Time is running out. There are 3 more days to go for a new Circulation record to be reached. Just about 4,000 Circulation Transactions need to occur by Wednesday evening. So, plan a stop at the Library in the next 3 days. A gift certificate from Modocs is on the line.

5,272 To Go

As of 12/22/09, 5, 272 circulation transactions are needed to reach a new yearly high. There are only 6 days remaining that the Library will be open for this to occur. If 145,784 is reached, there will be a prize (gift certificate from Modacs) to that person who takes out the 145,784th item.

Remainder: the Library will be closed on Christmas Day (24th) and Christmas Eve (25th). Happy Holidays and best wishes this season.

Challenge Update 12/17/09

Dear Patrons,

As mention in previous posts, I as Director am running a Circulation Challenge through the Director's Blog. As of 12/17/09, the Circulation Transaction count is 138,997 for 2009. Not counting today, there are 9 MORE DAYS remaining in 2009 that the Library will be open (the Library is closed on December 23 and 24 and December 31) for the Circulation Transaction total for 2008 (145,783) to be passed. If you are looking for some library materials to check during your busy Christmas, take a few minutes and stop by. Only 6,787 circulation transactions to go to surpass 2008. I have a reward in mind but will not announce anything until early next week on the Director's Blog. So keep a watch.

Happy Holidays,

Ware W. Wimberly III, Director

CD Shelving

In order to make the Cd music shelving more user friendly and easier to browse, new shelving within the next couple of days will be put in. I want to thank Ruth Lord for leading this project. So, stop by and let us know what you think about the new CD shelving.

Thank you again for your support!

Happy Holidays,

Ware W. Wimberly III

Challenge Update

Last month, I put a challenge on the Director's Blog in terms of surpassing last year's circulation transaction total. We are close but need a strong December total to surpass 145,783 circulation transaction total in 2008. As of the morning of December 1st, the total is 133,230. Thus there are 12,554 circulation transactions that need to happen before January 1, 2010. In order to make the challenge a little more interesting, I am hoping to work on some type of reward for the person who checks out the 145,784 circulation transaction. If I am able to work something out, I will post it on the Director's blog in the near future.

Regardless whether the 145, 784 is met, I want to thank you for your support and patronage!

Happy Holidays,

Ware W. Wimberly III, Director
